Growing up in South Florida, I’m embarrassed to say all I could associate with Tampa was Busch Gardens and nothing more. Then just over 2 years ago we had the opportunity to relocate from Arizona to the #813
, and I must confess I was hesitant about living here, based on that sad little assumption. Besides my husband’s warm, embracing, and hilarious Cuban-American Tampanian family, I’ve met some wonderful people, which I truly believe are what make a place feel like home. Add all the food, Gulf beach sunsets, Spanish moss’d oak trees, bungalow homes, community events, trendy artsy spots, and free and family-friendly activities ALL THE TIME EVERYWHERE, I can see why Tampa is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Happy to be raising our boys here! #tampaproud #tampabae #813day
Happy 813 Day, Tampa!! August 13 (813) is also our area code 😊, so people have been putting up some of their favorite Tampa pictures to celebrate. Here is the view of my lovely city at night from where I live. // Shot by Pixel
We hope everyone had an amazing #813day
! We will continually love this city and it’s people more and more every single day! In our minds everyday is 813 Day.
Must have transportation to Largo 💜💜💜
Frolicking at the beach without sucking in, ordering dessert without feeling guilty, saying “yes” to things that are good for my body and wanting to reward this frame instead of punish it — 2018 has been good to me. Of course, real life is messy and I am often terribly hard on myself, but today, I choose self-love. Tomorrow, I’ll try to choose it again. [📷: @vagnerlage

Found this little gem in my camera roll and figured I’d share it for #813Day
. I miss those fog days of winter, and miss working in Downtown Tampa. #Tampa #ChooseTampa

Summer in the South is not only a season, or a climate, it’s a dimension. Floating in it one must be either proud or submerged.” Don’t get submerged in the Florida heat this summer! ☀️💧We love staging patio areas and dreaming about those rare cool summer nights!

Posie’s Flower Truck » Everywhere, Tampa
Tampa! I am so happy to call you my home. 💛 A perfect way to start the week, celebrating this awesome city! @posiesflowertruck
is one of my favorites in Tampa, spreading flower happiness everywhere it appears!
We just arrived back from spending time with my friends and family Dallas. I went for my first wedding dress try ons and we had a big family gathering celebrating our engagement! It was a whirlwind of a trip, and I’m running on coffee today!
What is everyone up to this week?
One Y E A R ago Eric and I were just finishing our labor and delivery class. I talked him into going to Target to buy the rest of the things we needed for Olivia. He was convinced we didn’t need to go because we had plenty of time. But I was persuasive.
That night we went to the John Mayer concert with some of our best friends. We joked about how it could be our last date night (not really believing it). We enjoyed the concert and as quickly as we made it home and got to bed I was waking Eric up telling him my water broke... F I V E weeks early.
I didn’t actually believe it so when we were heading out of the house at 1:15 in the morning I told him not to worry about our hospital bags. He’s a smart man because he grabbed them.
Little did we know @johnmayer
would be our last date night because this girl is just as impatient as her mother. We got to the hospital at 2:00 and Liv was born at 2:52 a.m. it’s hard to believe that in just twelve hours it will be exactly 1 year since my little girl quickly came into the world. Can I just say that I’m not ready for her to turn a year old.

happy 813 day, Tampa!!!
this image does not celebrate anything about why I love you but, anyone that knows me knows how proud I am to call this city home.
p.s. I started @togethertpa
a year ago today (for a reason and still intend to use it to re-grow our community and help foster genuine, authentic, real life relationships. if you aren’t already, please follow along as I continue to figure out the direction it needs to go to do what I hope it can!
One of the cool things about what we do is that we help others realize their dreams. This order helps a person open their own urban gym. #icanmakeit #dreambigworkhard
From this day on, when I look back on my past. I will no longer feel regret. I will smile and reflect on the strength I had despite obstacles and people who tried to bring me down.
